Apailana was a human female monarch who served as the Queen of Naboo during the final days of the Clone Wars and the early days of the Galactic Empire.[3] She was one of the youngest rulers to be elected by the Naboo, succeeding Neeyutnee at the age of twelve.[2]

Shortly after the Clone Wars, the young queen attended the funeral of Senator Padmé Amidala,[3] who had supported Apailana's election as the new monarch. However, she did not believe the official story of Amidala's demise, which claimed that rogue Jedi had assassinated the senator.[2]

Personality and traitsEdit

Apailana measured 1.57 meters and had brown eyes and light skin. During Amidala's funeral, she wore a headdress in tribute to Amidala,[2] and put on makeup and like other queens, a scar of remembrance.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

"It feels kind of strange knowing that I rule the whole planet of Naboo and I'm only thirteen. At first, my face—because it was really white—was a bit of a shock. But when the whole costume was put together and the headdress was put on, I really felt proud, like a Queen."
―Keisha Castle-Hughes[src]

Apailana was portrayed by the Oscar-nominated New Zealander actress Keisha Castle-Hughes.[3] Castle-Hughes spent seven hours in make-up for her role in Episode III and filmed her scene in only one day.[4]
